Being a labandera / labandero is a decent job, so decent that it evolves into a commercial industry. The first company that started it all is Metropole Laundry and dry cleaning. Their history dates back more than 60 years ago. Started from its ancestors until the incorporation of Metropole in 1993.
What separates Metropole to other laundry company is that they are the first company to offer both self-service and on-site same day full service-dry-press laundry convenience to the public. They are also one of the first to put the laundry equipment in full view so customer could be assured that their clothes are never mixed with others.
